Klopp ready to shun lucrative offers


Jurgen Klopp says he has no interest in managing Real Madrid or Chelsea and is happy to stay with Borussia Dortmund.

The 45-year-old has earned himself a reputation as one of the top coaches in Europe after guiding BVB to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in the last two seasons.

As a result of Klopp’s success the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea have both been linked with approaches for the Dortmund boss in the summer.

Real look destined to part company with Jose Mourinho, while the Blues missed out on top target Pep Guardiola and seem unlikely to extend Rafael Benitez’s time in charge beyond the end of the season.

However, the two giants of European football look as though they could be wasting their time pursuing Klopp, with the former Mainz boss insisting he will see out his contract at Westfalenstadion before considering his future.

“I have a contract until 2016. I have said 20 times I’ll definitely stay until 2016. Everybody thinks I say it but that if a club like Chelsea or Real Madrid come in for me, I will go. This is something I can’t change but they will see,” the BVB boss told London Evening Standard.
